Our body parts are connected in various complex ways, so an issue in one area
can have unexpected consequences in another. As just one example, a
chiropractic issue that causes you to experience chronic discomfort may have
an unexpected impact on your sex life. Many male patients have come to
looking to have their back pain treated, and they are surprised to discover
that erectile dysfunction is often a symptom of many nerve, muscular, and back
conditions. With spinal decompression and other non-surgical treatments, Dr.
Rozenberg has been able to help such patients overcome both their back pain
and additional symptoms! If you’re tired of how back pain is changing
your life for the worse, call us today to schedule a consultation.

What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is a condition that prevents men from getting
erections. Normally, an erection occurs when the senses register
some form of sexual stimulation. The muscles of the penis relax and
increase blood flow to the area; the blood pushes then against the
veins carrying the blood out and blocks them. However, if the flow
of blood in the body is being disrupted or hindered in any way, then
this process can’t take place, resulting in erectile
dysfunction. Thus, men suffering from this condition are typically
also experiencing problems with veins and nerves elsewhere in their
What Can Cause Erectile Dysfunction?
There are many potential underlying reasons for erectile
dysfunction. In many cases, the problem might be connected to back
issues and other chiropractic problems. Examples of back pain that
might also tie into erectile dysfunction include:
Herniated Discs: The vertebrae in your spine are
separated by rubbery cushions called discs. If a disc becomes
herniated, it can result in significant back pain. Additionally,
the now out-of-place disc can compress nearby nerves and veins,
thus cutting off blood flow to the pelvic region.
Pinched Nerves: Inflammation in the lower spine
(which is a common source of lower back pain) can compress the
pudendal nerve that allows sensations to be felt in the lower
genitalia. Erectile dysfunction is a common consequence of damage
to the pudendal nerve.
Tight Hip Flexors: The hip flexors run from the
low back spine, through the groin, and into your hip. If they
become compressed, various tendons, joints, and muscles can be
pulled the wrong way, resulting in back pain, erectile
dysfunction, and various other uncomfortable symptoms.
Potential Treatment Options
Different forms of back pain require different forms of treatment.
By successfully addressing the underlying cause of the discomfort,
we may also help you overcome your erectile dysfunction. Spinal
decompression – a noninvasive treatment that gently stretches
the spine to take pressure off nearby nerves and discs – can
be used to relieve various types of back pain. We might also use an
MLS robotic laser to stimulate the body’s natural healing
processes so that damaged nerves can recover. At, The Spine &
Disc Center we provide the most advanced natural pain relief
therapy specifically for each patient’s condition and symptom
